The best place for sunsets.





One of my favorite things – sunset on the beach. A comfy chair on the deck, a glass of wine and dogs by my side. It doesn’t get much better than that.

The long hours of dusk in the summer time are some of my favorites. And recently we’ve had tremendous sunsets most every evening. This is partially due to smoke from neighboring wildfires. It doesn’t slow down the hummingbirds. We still see them going to the feeders, sometimes aggressively defending them from other hummers. There are fewer than there were a month ago. They are mostly juveniles now. The adults have moved on, migrating south to their wintering grounds or up in the mountains in search of nectar from wildflowers. I do enjoy warm summer evenings on our deck.

I can’t resist the ever-changing colors of a sunset and sunset on a beach is the most perfect.

The sunrises and sunsets were divine. We stopped what we were doing to make sure we could take them in. Often we’d have pina coladas while we watched the sunset. Sunrise was a good reason to get up in the morning.
